Angel Thornsbury
The Rise of the Skeletons: An Ode to Halloween

The skeletons will rise
At midnight on a full moon
Full of ghastly surprise.
The children will scatter.
Lonely wolves howl and carol.
Dim stars will chatter.

The skeletons will rise
And dance to the tune of wind
As the daytime light dies.
They will come together.
Their bones will clash with joy,
movements light as feathers.

The skeletons will rise
With bones bristling with full joy
Under the dark of skies.
The sun will soon awake.
The bones will slump to their graves.
The skeletons will ache.

Angel Thornsbury, 17, a native of Floyd County, is a full-time student in the Floyd County Early College Academy. She writes, “My love for all things Halloween inspired this poem. I appreciate the little things in life, like good writing.”
